I cut the pattern out first then I wanted to time it to see if it really was only a 1 hour dress.
It's only 4 pieces!
So I look at the time and its 6:50 pm so I start to sew!
After a lot of unpicking I got it done around 8:30 pm so around 1hr 30mins. I could not understand what the pattern was saying about sewing the interfacing on...I got completely lost and just unpicked it and did it my own way. So on my next dress I think it will definitely take 1hour or less..
And here it is! I love the dress..not sure if I like the fabric choice...It's hard trying to find a good fabric design..sometimes I will love the fabric but it may not look so good as a piece of clothing. Anywho, i am so excited to make another one. Usually the size is so off but this fits me so good. It even has you put darts in the chest area and I did not have to do any adjustments...I just did exactly what the pattern says. I didn't even have to take it in on the sides!!
There are so many options with this dress. I think everyone should have this pattern. And Everyone should have it in black. I want to get a solid color fabric and make it ruffly...I can add ruffles to the top and even have it be a tiered dress. I can even shirr(sp?) it in the middle. With this particular dress I am just going to leave it as is.
I like adding a fun fabric for the facing on the inside as well. And I love how this pattern did not involve any bias tape..I'm not good at that.
Because of the interfacing I didn't have to add bias tape...and look how clean it looks.
The button was simple to do too.
Wouldn't it be fun to do a sew -a-long with this dress? Or a challenge to see what everyone can make in 1 hour or less? I want to host something like that...maybe when I get more followers?
